Our New Editor: Patrick L. Quinlan
Originally published in The New Age [Buffalo, NY], vol. 10, whole no. 475 (Sept. 29, 1921), pg. 1.
This front page article in the mainline (not Left Wing) Buffalo Socialist Party weekly The New Age announces the hiring of a new editor for the publication -- Patrick L. Quinlan. A short sketch of some of Quinlan's activities is included, including membership as a young man in the Independent Labour Party, membership in the Socialist Labor Party of America, charter membership in the Industrial Workers of the World, organizer and strike leader of the Hotel Workers' Union, leadership of the 1913 Paterson silk strike, and two years' prison term resulting therefrom. "Last year he visited Russian and European countries and had some interesting experiences," the article dryly notes -- a massive understatement given the fact that Quinlan was a voting delegate of the Irish Labour Party at the 2nd World Congress of the Communist International in Moscow!
